Today’s fun video: Pot smokers not really OK with FBI chief

 

Word of warning to Washington's recreational marijuana smokers with mad computer skills: Regardless of what you may have heard, you will not -- repeat NOT -- be welcomed with open arms at the FBI, even if you are a master hacker.

During a recent Senate hearing, FBI Director James Comey had to "walk back" his comments he made to the Wall Street Journal about hiring folks with certain needed skills who smoke marijuana . Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who clearly was not amused by the comments. Just another example of leadership in America dismissing the seriousness of marijuana use, he says.

Because when it comes to a choice betwee preventing the Chinese from stealing U.S. trade secrets and keeping folks from smoking marijuana, America's priorities should be very clear.
